Phillemon as a graduating senior
The Care to Share Committee would like to share some very exciting news and send their heartfelt thanks to all of our community. Five years ago the Class of 2009 and the Care to Share Committee joined together to raise funds to help provide a Waldorf High School education to Phillemon Malebye in South Africa. Phillemon’s mother is a Waldorf kindergarten teacher at the Inkanyezi Waldorf school located in the shanty towns of Johannesburg. The family did not have the funds for Phillemon to attend a Waldorf High School, so they reached out for help through the Center for the Art of Living.
Care to Share had been contributing to the Inkanyezi school for several years, so Phillemon was a natural fit and the CWS students were excited to be working with a student of their age! After many bake sales, dyed silks sales, a talent show, and Care to Share tables at the Holiday Fair and May Fair, we are greatful to have been able to assist Phillemon and are proud that he has graduated and been accepted to University. Your generous donations have helped a young man achieve one of his dreams.
This is the ongoing work of the Care to Share Committee. Reaching out across the globe to help others achieve their dreams and goals. Looking outward is what makes us an international Waldorf School and brings the world into our community. Please keep reading Sound of Thunder for news from our committee. We also have a beautiful letter from Phillemon that is an introspective look into his deep feelings as he prepares to leave McGregor Waldorf School which has been his home for 5 years. Email Dru Muskovin if you would like a copy of his letter.
